    A representation of human behavior focused exclusively on our western world, made up of footage selected without any concern for place, time and ideology, that provides logical continuity to daily events with the intent of underlining the general contradictions of reality.

    «This movie is dedicated to my uncle Roberto Rossellini, not only for sentimental reasons but also for to be faithful to his teaching: in his works, for love and respect of human freedom, he has always wanted to show and not demonstrate.» (Fiorella Mariani)

  3. A short film about winter.

    Snow is particularly joyful in how it transforms everything it coversThe brightness of its white forces the iris in your eye to shut way down, and suddenly everything that isn’t snow is in silhouette or defined by shadow. The world becomes a high-contrast graphic representation of itself. This distillation of form allowed me to focus on painting pure motion in relation to the winter landscape.

    This film is composed of approximately 2,250 watercolor paintings on paper. It is a kind of winter companion to my film “L’Eau Life,” although here the water is frozen and therefore much easier to paint — because painting snow mostly means leaving the paper white.

    The music is by Shay Lynch, and wonderfully captures the endless cascade of the montage while giving the film a kind of emotional elegance in spite of its vaudevillian pratfalls.This film and essay originally appeared in my blog The Animated Life in the New York Times, Opinion.

    The Guardian

    The Guardian is a free interpretation of the parable "Before the Law" from Kafka's book "The Trial". A peasant after traveling the world arrives in front of a gate, controlled by a fearsome Guardian. The peasant tries to pass through but the Guardian denies him entrance. Peasant and Guardian are the same character, the peasant, like each one of us, in front of his own fear; the guardian, something shapeless, that surround and control him.
    the Door/Gate the possibilities we encounter during our life.
